# Readers Respond: What are your top strategies to study for math?

## Responses: 22

From the article: Dispelling the Math Myths
Studying for math often means doing the math. For me it means going through my old notes and analyzing the errors I've made in the past. Being able to determine where I've gone wrong will help me not to make those same mistakes twice. I tend to focus on analyzing the pattern of errors. I also find worksheets with similar questions to do. Reading through my math notes doesn't tend to work for me. Doing exercises, problems and questions is what works for me. Not only that, a positive attidude can go a long way too! Share your tips/tricks

Don't expect to study math the night before the exam, rather make it your daily hobby! Cramming seldom works for the long term.

## How I prepare for Math tests

What works for me is: I learn my definitions, formulas, etc... then I let it rest for a couple hours. I try to find some activity that will completely take my mind off the subject of Math. Then I do problems trying to remember everything WITHOUT picking at my formulas! I find this method very rewarding, because then I know exactly what I need to review for the exam.
